Miguel's War and Leisure is probably going to be the most buttery album about societal decay since There's a Riot Goin' On, and "Come Through and Chill" is the butteriest song yet that we've heard from it. Though Miguel debuted the track live on Colbert, we now have an official studio version that features none other than J. Cole on not one, but two verses.

The song also has Salaam Remi providing his signature soul-jazz production, but if you're reading this, you're probably here for Cole, who namedrops Colin Kaepernick and Trump to illustrate American racism. He also manages to mention multiple Balkan states in his opening verse ("I'm progressin', I just heard my songs is poppin' out in Macedonia / And even Serbia, I don't mean to burden ya") so there's that, too. It's a surprisingly unchill song about relaxing, so take a listen above.
